Jobs, jobs, jobs...Over one thousand of them, plus their spinoff are reportedly in peril in the small village of Ilion, NY where officials fear other states' efforts to lure the Remington Arms plant elsewhere as a result of New York's new gun law.
If it happens, it surely is not a significant price statewide for those who see the law as a needed effort to make the state safer from gun violence. It does point to the upstate/downstate split on the issue that is also resulting in a handful of county legislatures passing resolutions urging repeal of the SAFE NY Act.
Meanwhile, business at the Ilion plant is said to be brisk. Remington is not commenting on the reports to lure them elsewhere.
